A co-founder of a popular Florida clothing brand who fatally shot his teen girlfriend was apparently “play” gunfighting with her when bullets rang out, authorities said.

Michael Hutto, 54, who co-founded Salt Life apparel, told cops that he and girlfriend Lora Grace Duncan, 18, stopped at a Hilton Hotel on Singer Island, Fla., on a road trip, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported.

While pretending to shoot each other with their fingers in the room, he picked up an actual gun and it somehow went off, he said.

Hutto didn’t call for help before he took off from the scene, leaving behind his wallet and cellphone, the outlet reported.

Duncan was found dead in the hotel room on Oct. 29, a day after the fatal incident, police said. She had suffered a single gunshot to her stomach.

Police tracked down Hutto to a St. Augustine-area hospital, where he had been hospitalized for a potential drug overdose.

When officers went to speak with him, he allegedly blurted out, “I think I may have hurt my Gracie.”

He was booked on a manslaughter charge on Oct. 30 after he was discharged from the hospital.
